Reviews

'A comprehensive and accessible study of the latest thinking on network governance. A great collection of authors bring into focus the challenge of how we are governing ourselves in today's complex societies. The book provides an excellent account of where we have got to in the study of network governance and some very good hints about where we might go in the future.' - Gerry Stoker, Professor of Governance and Politics, University of Southampton, UK

'A significant contribution to the governance literature. Networks are often seen as the chief manifestation of new forms of governance and this volume discusses in detail the virtues and perils, the prospects and problems with governance by networks. Given the breadth of the volume and the quality of analysis it offers, this book is an inevitable reading for students and scholars interested in governance.' - Jon Pierre, Professor of Public Administration, Gothenburg University, Sweden

'...this is a highly useful book. As well as providing a cogent theoretical platform of its own from which to launch a new generation of research in this area it should also be of interest to a broader number of readers than its narrow subject title might suggest.' - David Moon, University of Sheffield, Political Studies Review
